    Craftybear this is the pattern that I designed from someone posting a picture of a vintage quilt here that was made with a block like this. If anyone is interested in the pattern just please PM me and I will email them one.

    Thanks,

    That's a great star! And really impressive results for a first time PPer.
    Perfect for this weekend.

    It really shows off how much fun you can have with the fabric in those larger rays.

    Beautiful. This one piece would make a nice table runner for my work counter.

    I like this choice of fabrics. Love the way the stripe looks like it has the waves in it! Wish my block was looking as good as this one! But I am still working on it.

    Linda,

    Your block looks really nice and I can hardly wait to add it here to show everyone how nice it looks with the floral prints. I will email you the pattern to so you can have it for future references (this is the 12" block). I think you ever doing the 15" weren't you.

    Thanks a bunch,
    Sherryl

    I would like a copy of your pattern. Haven't done any paper piecing for a long time.
